What we're about

Playing from Spring through Fall, so let's get 2020 back on track!

COVID-19 restrictions are being eased - Outdoor fitness classes, athletic practices, training sessions and games are allowed as long as coaches, spectators and participants not from the same household maintain a distance of six feet from one another at all times. That means gyms and fitness centers can hold outdoor classes and workouts as well, but they have to meet the social distancing guidelines. These guidelines are effective immediately. No more than 100 people can gather.

This organized pick-up game is perfect for men AND women who:

• Used to play and want to get back on the field

• Like strong play but don't want overly aggressive play

• Accept the fact that their glory days are over

• Realize they aren't 18 anymore

• Understand its just for fun and we all have to go to work on Monday

• Want to learn how to play because their kids play

• Are trying to get into shape

• Like to socialize with other friendly soccer players

This is NOT a good fit for you if you:

• Still think you're in your athletic prime

• Believe you just might get discovered by a scout walking past the field

• Still think you and the other players are invincible

• Aren't concerned about getting hurt (or hurting others) and missing work on Monday

Details

Bring a light shirt (yellow or white) and a dark shirt (preferably red or maroon)

NO SLIDE TACKLES

No overtly aggressive play

Self refereed - gentlemen's rules followed

Most of us have played high school (or later) ball, but it is not a requirement.

If you take your kids to soccer and want to try the sport yourself, this is a good place to come.

Sunday Pickup Soccer - 6:30 PM start

Highland Community Soccer Fields

It has been a great summer of solid run play each week. Maintaining about 20-22 members each week. Please remember to bring a white and dark shirt so we can balance teams appropriately. See you Sunday! Open to all adults - guys and girls. We are open to all skill levels from beginner to advanced. We are out to have fun and enjoy the game. Don't see enough players RSVP'd? We have been running at about 16-18 players per week, sometimes more. There will be more players coming than what shows up on Meetup.com. We usually play with full size goals and a field size appropriate for the number of players we have - it is a soccer complex with a variety of field options. Please bring one dark and one light jersey. As it is pickup, we will balance the teams as best as possible for even teams. We are all working adults and have to go to work in the morning. Let's have fun and play fair. There is no dangerous play or slide tackling. We self-referee for offsides, hand-balls, etc. Please RSVP so we can know how many to expect. I am accepting donations (like $5-10 annually) to cover the cost of maintaining the Meetup group. Meetup.com charges monthly fees to use the site and I want this group to make it strong into the future. Please consider giving me a couple of bucks if you are enjoying the group. Thanks!!! If you have kids, feel free to bring them. This is a safe, open field location where they can play and enjoy being outside. It is a great opportunity for them to see their parents prioritizing their health. If enough kids show up that want to play, they could form their own game on an adjacent field.
